Inspired by the Land of Nod Crocheted (“I’m a Little Knit Teapot”) Tea Party Set, I decided to make a teapot, cups, and saucers for my daughter.


You know those cinnamon scented pine cones that are always in grocery and craft stores around Thanksgiving and Christmas? I’ve never bought them before. I have no idea why. They smell WONDERFUL. So the first decoration I made involved those, some ribbons in my “theme colors” for this year (and probably several years after this)


I have so many winter/Christmas/Hanukkah/Holiday children’s books, and this tradition will make sure they are all read and enjoyed each year. I’m looking forward to seeing how this tradition evolves, and how my kids become more involved in it as the years go by.


These may be “inappropriate” but a smart child could definitely enjoy some of them. And whether or not you choose to share them with your children, you can’t help but admit they’re super-clever. They’re all on my must-buy list now. 1. Pat the Bunny was one of my favorites when I was a kid. Making
